Hi

In my Trados Analysis, I have the folllowing:

Segments Words Percent
Repetitions: 5286 21965 28%
100% 324 666 1%

Isn't a repetition and a 100% match the same?

100% match is what one has in TM already. That's why there are no matches with an empty TM.
Repetition is something appearing in the text more than once, but not present in TM.

Many clients won't pay 100% match at all. But others pay a small percent for review.

This is not very fair, because the 100% matches (especially in large amounts) take up time even if you are not required to review them. For example, when you run a spell checker, you can't configure it to skip full match segments. When I translate (in TagEditor) a software manual with a lot of English UI terms, the spell checker stops at every English word. If there are 20 000 full matches, the process slows down significantly.

Also, for example in TagEditor, you can't see a difference between a Repetition and a Full Match - they are all marked as 100% matches.

Would be a good feature though, worth adding to SDL Ideas.
